PDR vs. Tea

Here’s something: I don’t like to drink tea. No type of tea has ever been an appealing beverage for PDR. Sometimes people who like tea try to convince me to try it. And somehow, every time this occurs, I end up using the expression “It’s not my cup of tea.”

This is never done intentionally. I’m not purposely making a pun in this instance. It always comes out of my mouth before I can catch it. And the weirdest part is that, as far as I have noticed, it isn’t an expression that I often use in other circumstances. If someone was trying to get me to like lobster, I’d just be like “Nah, I don’t like lobster” but with tea it’s always “Nah, it’s not my cup of… dammit!”

Sometimes I wonder just what goes on inside my brain.

  1. And somehow, every time this occurs, I end up using the expression “It’s not my cup of tea.”

    Ha, ha… I will remember that. I don’t like tea either; I mean, I really don’t get it. Mixing some weird, mostly tasteless plant with hot water? You might as well boil some grass and drink that, for all I can see.

  2. Hmmm. How would you respond you were offered Lobster Tea?

  3. It occurs to me that my typical thing to say in this kind of situation is something about it not being “my scene” but still, that isn’t what I say when it comes to tea for some reason.
